Comments: Lenten opinions

G Fraser, re the Accra slum, "Sodom & Gomorrah":

"rape is normal. Few things surprise few people. Sleeping outside in the night is an invitation for a predator to strike. Most of us sleep with tight protective underwear — especially tight worn-out jeans — because you could wake up in the middle of the night to find somebody crawling on you to do his own thing.” No wonder they looked to that in­famous story in Genesis to find a suit­able name for this terrifying place."

No wonder indeed. What one must wonder at, is why the same-sex marriages of *consenting adults* is also compared to that infamous Genesis story. Lord have mercy!
